Snow on the ground and seasonal normals back. It was a great year for this new rider. My skill off road has gone from marks for effort (literal and figurative marks) to not bad. Ethel is not as skinny or fast as some of those other bikes but she chooches and keeps up with faster skinny bikes ridden by better riders. Be back next year with a rack and maybe a jimbo and new rubber (she is 10 and still wearing her original boots) that maybe has a chance on wet clay. I got spun 270 degrees a half dozen times on one ride. Catch an edge on a rut and around she goes. Keeping the rubber side down is hard when you can't stand up it's so slick.
